Maris Kreizman (Slaughterhouse 90210) brought her favorite sad song with her: Concrete Blonde – Joey. Joey has been one of Maris’ favorites for years, and even sang it from a porch for the world to hear! We talk about how Maris found herself connecting to sad songs about complicated relationships and thinking she related to them on some level. We talk about aspirational sadness and the cathartic power that sad music has.
This one certainly was surprising. We had Annalise Domenighini come in a few months ago and she chose Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag” as her song. Turns out Twitter is excellent and we managed to get Wheatus’ main man, Brendan B. Brown, come in to talk to us about Steve Winwood’s “Valerie.”
